You create an application that uses the CDatabase object or the CRecordset object to call the GetFieldValue function in Microsoft Visual C++ .NET 2003 Service Pack 1 (SP1). You use this application to retrieve data from a field by using SQL Native Client (SNAC)-ODBC-driver. The field is of the varchar (max) Microsoft SQL Server 2005 data type. When you run the application, an empty string is returned instead of the real value.
Note The correct results are returned if the SQL ODBC driver is used.
This problem occurs because the SNAC driver introduces a new data type that is not expected when the MFC 7.1 libraries are written.
